On the Western edge of Bogotá is a mountain range that creates picturesque view. The main hill, Monserrate, is seen from virtually every where in the city. On top of the mountain is a church that stands, promising incredible views.
To get to the top, a few of us took the aerial tramway. The quick five minute ride took us up, and I felt the thin air take a toll. According to the most reliable source on the internet, Wikipedia, we were at 10,341 feet. When I stepped off the train, we had to walk up a slight hill. Two minutes later, my out of shape ass was huffing and puffing. Seriously, I need to go for a run to get used to this altitude.
The views were great. Below is a collection of photos I snapped, edited on my computer.
The northern part of the city
A cool color inversion setting I have on my camera.
My camera has a cool time lapse feature that I used on top of the mountain. I set it to focus more on the interaction of people over the course of about ten minutes. Pretty cool feature…
